Search this NG for some helpful info. Quadro and GeForce cards seem to be the most popular. I suggest staying away from ATI and Matrox.

I've been saving these up and since it's
Friday....

 

(with credit to several of the usual suspects on
the NG)

 

 

Top 10 official uses for a Matrox video card
list:

 

1. paperweight
2. door stop
3. skeet shooting
targets
4. throw it into your car trunk and use it for traction the next time
you get stuck
5. they make for good shims for wobbly tables...with any luck,
its not a different thickness than the ATI board under one of the other legs.

6. bookend
7. Frisbee
8. coffee table for Barbie dolls

9. Art Deco coffee table statue

10.  Collect 1000s of them and melt down the
gold on the contacts to make a whopping $5.00

 

Have a good weekend guys!

Should you decide to go with a Quadro 4 card, a link to a couple of pretty good deals was posted earler.

You have to replace the asterisks at the end such that you spell out the name of a much debated competitor
of Inventor. The $199 / $399 (US) prices are almost impossible to beat. I almost wish my card would die!!!

Quadro 4 750 - Received mine this week. Tried it out in place of my tweaked
Geforce 2 GTS.

Pro:
Supports two monitors.
Faster frame rate.
Split view now works great.

Cons:

Great Planes RealFlight does not like the card because of conflicts with
drivers and MS System 80 USB sound.

Now do I want to work or play?
